The Habano Festival: A Family Reunion


During his keynote speech, Mr. Maique that the first two months of the ongoing year have held on to the upward trend achieved by the company in 2011 and thanked the massive turnout for the 14th Habano Festival.

The tasting of the Maximo rum and the Behike, the alliance between Oporto and Habanos, the dinner dedicated to the 520th anniversary of the encounter between Europeans and tobacco in Cuba, and the launch of the company’s newest products were some of the highlights of the recently-concluded festival, the senior exec expressed.

The Blindfolded Habano Tasting and the International Habanosommelier Contest were especially acclaimed by attendees as events that show the preparedness and knowledge of people working closely with Habanos. “There’s an increasingly larger number of people with great qualifications in this field, and this is a warranty for the future,” the co-president of Habanos S.A. concluded.
